Newly built and professionally designed tiny house. The quiet neighborhood provides a refuge for those seeking a calmer environment. The 12 ft by 12 ft cottage has everything you need for comfortable living. Designed by an accredited architect with years of experience in optimizing small spaces, it is fully furnished with a bathroom, kitchen, and cozy bedroom. The cottage has its own private entrance and access to a spacious backyard.

The space

Driveway and off-street parking is available. Overnight parking in the City of Menlo Park is restricted, but courtesy warnings are issued before any citations.

Bedding includes luxury all-cotton bed linens, a down comforter, and 2 regular. And of course there's an ample supply of towels.

If you'd like to bike, we have a spare bike we can let you use at a nominal cost: $5 a day, $25 a week or $75 a month plus $75 refundable deposit.

The Tiny House is walking or easy biking distance to Stanford, Palo Alto, Faceb00k, the VA Hospital and Sand Hill Road venture capital corridor (we are also a short 10 minutes drive to G00gle). We are 2 blocks from Interstate 101. You can take the train from SFO airport—not fast, but very inexpensive! BART directly from SFO to Millbrae Caltrain station (approx 15 min and $4); train to Menlo Park (under 30 minutes approx $4); and we are right down Willow St from the station (30-minute brisk walk or very short uber ride). Less than 30 minutes’ drive from both San Francisco & San Jose airports, in normal traffic.

Guest access

You have the keys to a private entrance to the tiny house. You will have access to the yard and the tiny house (private and with everything you need).

Good location, and sparkling clean space. It's very small, as advertised, and better for just sleeping instead of spending much time. Though the space is small, it has everything you need for a comfortable sleep. Erika and Mauricio are lovely hosts, and it felt like being at home.

Private entrance and en suite which is all I look for. Small but has everything one could possibly need and/or want. It backs up to the freeway but I didn't hear any traffic.

Enjoyed the stay at Mauricio's! It was just what I was looking for -- a well priced clean separate room close to everything on the peninsula.

Feel free to reach out for any questions. The tiny house is on our back yard and we are here to help.

About Erika & Mauricio

We are Airbnb hosts and travelers. On the hosting side, we have a "tiny house" on our yard that we started hosting for when we don't have family visiting us (we are from Brazil, so our parents come for an extended stay). We have remodeled and renovated the place for our extended family.

On the traveling side, we really enjoy the friends we make on Airbnb and all the local insights we get that we would never receive on a hotel. We usually travel as a family (we are a family of 4 with a 3 year old and a 19 year old that is already traveling by herself) but sometimes it is just me or my wife and my daughter (as the 3 year old is not going everywhere).
